Last year Mia Ayliffe-Chung’s, a backpacker from the UK ,was killed whilst doing her regional work for her second year Australian working holiday visa. Hear about the work that her mother is doing on trying to make farm work fairer for backpackers.

Also, a tragic death in the Northern Territory  brings me to talk about the feeling of “invincibility” that backpackers often get, and how it should be managed.
